Default The new band!

Ok, time to shift focus and get excited about this upcoming tour, lets discuss the makeup of Lindseys' new band.

We know that Neale has stayed with the Mac, but Brett has stayed with Lindsey. Therefore Lindsey will need a second guitarist, thoughts? I think Lindsey will go with a complete unknown as this will keep the costs of the tour down, he might call Steve Ross but i have no idea if he would want to be a touring musician again, he will need someone who can cover as much ground as Neale did, which is a huge task.

We know that for the first time since the OOTC tour Linds will have a dedicated bass player with Frederico as opposed to Brett playing when a song called for a bass player.

I think Jimmy will be back behind the kit as he wraps his tour with Ben Harper on the 14th of September. It could possibly be Walfredo who has been Chicago's drummer for the last 4 years, as their tour wraps on the 23rd of September.

Thoughts?

yes on Federico and Brett. i also think Jimmy. i have long advocated for Janet Robin to replace Neale. she's a great guitarist and singer, was already in Lindsey's touring band with some of the current band members, plus it's time to break up the boys club in LB's solo bands! i know she's already got her own tour dates lined up somewhere in Europe at about the same time frame, but maybe she can be convinced to change plans?

Iím all for this! I enjoy her playing more and I think itís a better fit with Lindsey.

Neale has always sounded like a very talented but generic guitar player to me. But that being said, probably needed with Lindís unique style.

I still donít get why Fleetwood Mac would keep Neale, and why Neale wouldnít go with Lindsey, aside from money, which makes him as complicit as Christine, according to people here.

No it doesn't. He's a touring musician. He needs to tour to make income. I'm sure he's a great friend of Lindsey and his presence on so many of Lindsey's solo ventures shows that, but I'm sure that the real money has always come from FM. I doubt that tours like Lindsey's generate much profit, especially compared to FM.

seriously??????? you don't see the difference between a jobbing musician who needs to work to pay his day-to-day bills (and has serious health problems) vs independently wealthy rock star who never has to work a day in her life anymore, and hasn't had for decades?

also the arguments that Christine is Mick's and/or John's friend so owes them? well, doesn't friendship go both ways? if they are HER friends, shouldn't they also listen to her? so yes, people think she needed to weigh in with her dear friend Mick, same as he was with her. but oh wait Mick needs money! well, tough! Mick is a rock star and a co-producer of the biggest FM albums. you know, the ones the whole FM is co-producer of? Rumours? he should have tons on money coming in, if nothing co-producing money. he made millions on each Mac tour. i can't feel bad for Mick the same as i don't feel bad when people say that poor Rolling Stones always squander all their money and have to go to yet another tour.

and while i am at it, Mike Campbell? co-writer of some of the biggest money making songs ever? with Petty, with the Eagles and Nicks? yes, let's feel bad for poor Mike, he just needed a job. right?

I know it will NEVER HAPPEN. But in my dreams I have always wanted Lindsey to team up for a solo tour with Nancy Wilson of Heart. IT WOULD BE AMAZZZZING! Now that Heart is on hiatus, maybe next year? haha

I get Neale has had his illness, but I don’t get why Fleetwood Mac needs him, now. And, I’m sure he’s been handsomely paid for his work. I’m glad he’ll be there, if that’s what all parties want. What rubs me the wrong way is how Brett is praised and Christine damned for their choices. They had their own reasons that are none of our business.

Quote:

I never said she owes them, just that her loyalty will always be with them, and it’s unfair and unrealistic to expect otherwise. She has significantly more history with them, personally and professionally. The only tours she’s ever done without them are with Chicken Shack, her 1969 band, her 1984 band, and LBCM.

When did I ever suggest that MC needed sympathy? I feel bad he lost his best friend on a human level, but he’s had a great run professionally.
